KSA in KOF from SNK

‘The King of Fighters '98 Ultimate Match’ is coming out on the PS2 soon. It features 64 characters and online play.
It is also the first fighting game in history to feature a stage set in Saudi Arabia. I guess this is to be considered a late thank you on SNKs part (KSA is probably one of the top ten countries in sales from the NEOGEO era).

The Art of Buying

The Wii will get its first NeoGeo Virtual Console games in North America Today (Monday). Busy as I am, this deserves a comic.
I was one of those people who spent a large stake of my high school income on NeoGeo games. To fit it neatly in one equation:
6 months of allowance = 1 NeoGeo game
Now, 15 years later, I plan to buy ‘Art of Fighting’ for %4 of the price I paid for that very same game back then.
In 1992, $9 wouldn’t even buy you a NeoGeo game cover. I hope they come out with a NeoGeo themed Wii (with arcade stick) soon.
